Initial thoughts on Treo 600 - CDMA from Sprint

by numerouno    Oct 18, 2003, 3:13 PM

I am in love! My Treo 600 is a wonderful phone and MP3 player. I looked at the P800 but cannot stand the industrial design - that silly flip lid thing and swimming pool colors.

Some comments:
Would like the browser to tag spoof to allow access to occasional secure sites that refuse Blazer.

Would like the new (mob)Blog software for Zire to work on Treo wirelessly - just a matter of time. I use SnapperMail now to blog at

Favorite add-on gadget - a USB card reader for MP3 and file transfer to SD cards.

Sprint - what were you thinking not having Business Connection ready in time? I am using Visto MessageExpress meantime and keeping an eye on Good GoodLink if my company chooses to go that way.

Keyboard is small - I thought I would need an external too but now I am not going to bother. It is fine. You can run Jot from CIC on it but I found it unnnecessary and deleted it before it expired.

Screen is much more readable in sunshine than Treo 300.

Web surfing and data access are v. fast. Same as Treo 300 - I have seen up to 150kbps.

Extra software is nice - particularly PocketTunes and SplashID.
